roadmap for SWT?? [message #459220] Wed, 03 August 2005 15:05 Go to next message

Hi all!

I know, there was already a similar question - since there was no answer
and I need to decide whether using SWING or SWT/RCP, I wanted to ask again:

* Is there something as a roadmap for future SWT development?

* Is there some plan about new features or widgets. I'm mainly
interested in some enhancements of Table and Tree.

Thanks in advance!

IMHO, you have three choice regarding GUI s/w development at the moments;
1. SWT
2. AWT. You need to develop many your own widgets!
3. Use native ones such as Visual C++/Basic.

My 8 years experience in this area has no good impression with
Swing. The very existence of this forum proves that. I've been
evaluating SWT for a while. Unless you need to use MDI, SWT
looks ready for you. Note that you can better spend your time not
touching anything about Swing!

Regards.
